'Globalization and History' Kicks Off Speaker Series

April 14, 2015

Is globalization the new paradigm that will reinvigorate history? Lynn Hunt, distinguished research professor at UCLA and author of several groundbreaking books on world history and human rights, will tackle this and other questions in "Globalization and History: New Paradigm or Trojan Horse?" at 4 p.m. Wednesday, April 22, in Room 1506 of Mihaylo Hall.

This will be the inaugural lecture of the Global Studies Speaker Series, which seeks to stimulate a discussion of world history.

"We envision the series as a way to increase global awareness among both students and faculty," explains Lisa Tran, associate professor of history. "For instructors of the world history courses, we hope that the series will spark conversations about approaches to world history. For students, we hope that the series will show them the role of history in an increasingly interconnected world."
